May Day! May Day!

I suppose it’s time to catch up on the happenings in Mindy’s world. It’s been a rainy soggy spring so far here in NE Ohio. We finally got past the cold nasty of winter only to move into what feels like continuous rainy days. We have had a few scattered sunny warm days but it’s almost impossible to believe that tomorrow is May Day!

I got my first pair of bifocals—wowza—I’m getting old!! Not only bifocals, but I now own THREE pair of reading glasses so I can always have some close by. You know, by the computer, in my purse, at work, etc. Luckily I can still read pretty good without those pesky readers but they do make it easier!

It’s baseball time here in Ohio so we have been watching the Tribe. We spent a couple days in Cleveland for Opening Weekend (that was rainy and cold—shocker!) and had fun in spite of the weather!

may day 7

The Social Suite ALWAYS means a good time at Progressive! April has not been a good month for them as they are in the basement of the AL Central but it’s a long season so I see a brighter future—I’m hoping for one anyhow! We are heading back to the Social Suite Sunday May 4th to battle the White Sox and I am optimistic that it will be warmer, dryer and the Indians will WIN!!

may day 9

My sisters-in-laws, niece & mother-in-law spent a fun girls outing painting! First we enjoyed dinner at the Stonebridge Grille (I had Mahi Mahi that was scrumptious!!)

Who knew that Picasso was hiding inside all of us! Haha! We each created our own masterpiece and put our personal touches on it.  The pARTy Gallery is a terrific way to spend an evening!  

They will even bring the party to you!  Check ‘em out!

We spent some of the rare warmer sunny days with our boys. I actually took all 3 to the dog park on my own—crazy I know! It’s a good energy release for them! They think they own the place for some reason. We were also able to enjoy a nice long hike at Mill Creek Park this past Sunday. We only had to dodge one angry goose who thought we were invading their nest!

We also got to meet up with some of our golden retriever facebook friends this past weekend!  You can never have too many!!

After traveling to the Buffalo area for some work training a couple weeks ago, I returned only to find that my husband would be traveling the next 3 weeks! Home a couple days and then gone for 4 or 5! Lots of miles to be conquered! 

We also celebrated Easter this month!

may day 13 
My parents leave next week for a month in Guam. They will be watching their oldest grandson graduate from high school. Then the whole family will be moving back to the states and arrive June 14th! Yes, I’m excited!
I can hardly wait because in 17 days we will be leaving for a week in the Outer Banks again. All 3 dogs will be joining us. I am SOOOO looking forward to a week of sun, sand and relaxing. Mix in some friends, fresh seafood, the pool and hot tub and it’s an absolute paradise for a week!
But before that I still need to get thru the next couple weeks with Mark traveling, work, meetings, work dinner (2 days before vacation!) and packing for the OBX! 

In today’s mail there was a wedding shower invitation, a Bar Mitzvah invitation, and a wedding invitation!
May Day! May Day! I need that vacation BAD!!

PS–I think Jake looks like how I feel sometimes!!

What a great idea!  Golden Retrievers can celebrate Easter, even if they can’t have chocolate!
